Pelvic tilts, knee to chest, and trunk rotation are all simple stretches to get started. They can be done on a couch, bed, or on the floor.
Bridges, Dead Bug, and Bird Dog are all simple exercises to get started. They can also be done on a couch, bed, or on the floor. These should help strengthen, loosen up tight back muscles, and relieve pain in the low back area.
